Supplies you’ll need to create your own Rain Boots Door Hanger:

- Daisy Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Bunker Hill Blue Dixie Belle Chalk Paint

Start by grabbing your Rain Boots Door Hanger Kit from Twin Knobs Wood Works. Twin Knobs Wood Works sells a variety of wood cutouts that make DIY projects super easy. Shop their Spring cutouts HERE.
To begin, trace the shape of the two boot portions that are going to be covered with scrapbooking paper.
Once you have your pieces traced, cut them out.
Add a layer of Mod Podge to the wood cutout portions using a small brush.
Then, add your paper on top.
You will most likely have a bit of overhang that will need to be removed.
Use sand paper to get any overhang of scrapbook paper off. The paper will start to shred before it completely falls off. As seen below.
Once all of the overhang has been cleaned up, apply a layer of mod podge to the top and sides to seal.
Be sure to smooth out the sides. You do not want the Mod Podge thick and drippy, as these pieces will need to fit back in the frame for placement later when gluing.
Now it’s time to start painting!
Start by painting the boots with the color Daisy.
You can use a toothpick to remove any excess paint from the grooves in the cutout.
Next, add a layer of Bunker Hill Blue to the soles of the boots.
Finally, use the color Kudzu for the leaves of the flowers.
For the tulips, I used the colors Peony and Soft Pink and blended them with a fine tip brush to get the color I wanted. You could use just one color if you prefer. I just like a variegated look. It gives the flowers dimension and texture.
I used a toothpick to remove excess paint from the grooves on the tulips also.
In the photo below, you can see the color variation I was able to create by using two colors of paint for the tulips.
Next, I painted the word cutouts with a mix of Soft Pink and Peony.
I mixed the two to match one of the ribbons I had picked out for my bow and then applied the custom color with a makeup sponge.
Let’s get everything glued together! First, use the frame to help with the placement of the words.
Then, add glue to the back of each word and carefully place them in while lifting the frame so it does not glue to itself.
Now, glue the centers of the boots. Be sure to line up for placement before doing so.
Now, add glue and place the boots and flower on the door hanger.
To finalize the door hanger, drill holes for hanging and add a layer of clear coat. Then you can add your twine and coordinating bow.
This project has so many possibilities because you can use whatever colors best fit your home!
